  • Body scrubs are a great way to exfoliate dead skin cells
  • Scrubs can help prevent ingrown hairs, stimulate your skin cell production, improve your circulation, fade dark spots, and unblock pores. 
  • We recommend using White Sands Dual-Action Body Scrub twice a week, but ultimately you’re the expert on your own skin’s needs.
  • If you have body acne, sweat a lot or have oily skin, you might need to exfoliate a little more regularly. If you’ve got drier skin, you may find that you need to exfoliate less often, to prevent over exfoliation.

Body scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and physically remove dead skin cells, leaving you with softer, smoother skin. The results are immediate, with your skin feeling more revitalized and refreshed

Body scrubs are definitely a must-have in everyone’s shower body care routine. Scrubs are ideal for the body, as they can help prevent ingrown hairs, which result from hair growing back into the skin. They can also help stimulate your skin cell production, improve your circulation, fade dark spots, and unblock pores.

How often should you use a body scrub? 

Though there isn’t an exact answer to this question, there are some general guidelines that should be followed.

Using a body scrub is definitely not an everyday thing. Even though our White Sands Body Scrub is packed with gentle ingredients, like most things, when done in excess, exfoliation can be too harsh on the skin. We recommend using White Sands Dual Action Body Scrub twice a week, but ultimately you’re the expert on your own skin’s needs.

Just like a step in your body care regime, you’ll see the best results when you’re aware of your skins’ changing needs and tailor your body care products accordingly.  These needs can change from day to day or season to season, so pay careful attention to how your skin looks and feels.

If you have body acne, sweat a lot, or have oily skin, you might need to exfoliate a little more regularly. If you’ve got drier skin, you may find that you need to exfoliate less often, to prevent over-exfoliation. The skin on your body is usually less sensitive than on your face so you can experiment a little here until you find a good routine that works for you, (as long as you’re paying attention.)

Our White Sands Dual-Action Body Scrub has a grainy texture, thanks to polishing quartz crystals and rice granules, to help slough away dead skin cells on the surface. The rice granules actually encapsulate alpha hydroxy acids (derived from kiwi) that work to dissolve the glue-like substance that binds your dead skin cells together, leaving you feeling smoother and softer. Plus, it is enriched with mango butter, which has incredible anti-inflammatory properties, that help smooth the skin and can relieve eczema and dermatitis.

We believe that hydrated skin is an important part of your overall health and wellness. Packed with physical and chemical exfoliants, and rich in vitamin A and E, White Sands helps to clears away dead cells that accumulate on our skin.

It can unclog up your pores, reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks and treat various issues like dry and aging skin. 

So go ahead and unplug for a little, and treat yourself to a long shower or bath, using only the best products.
